We made it to BREAKFAST REPUBLIC and it was “Clucking Good!”
I love Tres Leches cake so of course I had to try the pancake of the month, Tres Leches Pancake! It was beautiful and even better it was absolutely delicious. They offered it with a side of maple and a shot of sweetened condensed milk….yummy!
We also tried the San Diego Eggs Benedict in addition to the Jalapeno Bacon Cheddar Omelette. They were both really tasty!
Their Clucking Good sauce has good flavor, but isn’t very spicy. Their house ketchup however is a combination of ketchup and Tabasco (my opinion) and was actually a tad bit spicier than their hot sauce. Their salt and pepper shakers are eggs!
I really liked their Cafe de Olla (I drank it black) which is a Mexican coffee with cinnamon. Their mugs explain exactly how I feel before having my first sip of coffee.
The restaurant itself is laid out nicely and the lighting is beautifully done. The bar area was comfortable with good counter height chairs. The patio appeared to be spacious and they offered the cutest egg chairs in the waiting area.
There’s a fun green wall with large lettering that says RUN COCK RUN, so of course being a runner I had to take a few photos. You thought I was going to say something naughty !
They offered some cute merchandise with my favorite shirt saying Resting Brunch Face!
I kept looking at what other people ordered and it looked amazing, especially the Strawberry Pancakes, the French Toast and the Chilaquiles. Their portions are a bit on the larger size, almost perfect for sharing and sampling multiple items.
The staff seemed knowledgeable, but a bit stressed with the vast amount of customers. The manager was really nice and shared her prior background as a flight attendant for United Airlines.
If you like Snooze, you will definitely like Breakfast Republic.
They’re located right next door to Trader Joe’s at the UCI Shopping Center.
I’m always on the lookout for new breakfast places and those restaurants that can please a family of four are usually a big hit with me. Here’s Breakfast Republic’s menu, I’m confident that you will find something good or something fun to eat.
They’re open daily from 7am to 3pm.
